I went back to work after maternity leave properly in September and the long and the short of it is that life hit me like a tonne of bricks. Being a working mum of two is literally 100 times more difficult and busy and tiring than a working mum of one. I'm sure of it. It's the first day of the Christmas holidays and it's the first day I've not had anything I've had to do for months. It's felt odd. I can't WAIT to clean my house, which is struggling in the "lack of time" category.
But here's the other reason I've run out of time...
I started my own business.
That's it. I fell into it a bit and feel I am completely winging my way through but I am loving it. But it means the time I found to be at the computer for blogging has been replaced with advertising and promotion and photo editing. For clients. Not for my blog. That's because Hannah Hall Photography is official.
Amazing and terrifying all at the same time, and 2015 will be the year that changes my life. I'm working exclusively by word of mouth and via my Facebook and Twitter pages at the moment, but I'm sure that's set to expand next year. I'd love it if you popped over and said hi!
Work aside, life is good. Lowen is nearly 10 months, and getting ready to let go of that sofa and toddle off. She's a monster when it comes to food and doesn't stop eating. She understands far more than I ever gave a 10 month old credit for and she LOVES getting your attention by shouting "hiya!!!!" at the top of her voice.
Effy is 2 years and 9 months and just incredible. She's dramatic; a performer, a singer, a linguist, a story teller. Her memory and her imagination astound me. She's hot headed, fiery and passionate... She reminds me of her mother...
My new year's resolution is to blog again. Once a month at the very least. I promise.
Merry Christmas, bloggers. xx
